From September 2nd through September 30th, the Ridgefield Library will be participating in the first Passport to Connecticut Libraries program. Sponsored by the Connecticut Library Association in support of Library Card Sign Up Month, the program is modeled on the state’s popular Wine Trail Passport Program.
Here’s how it works. Anytime, on or after September 2, ask for a passport at one of the Library’s service desks. You’ll also receive a list of the over 80 participating libraries. Visit any one and show a valid library card to have your passport stamped and to receive a small gift. At the end of the month, hand in your passport at any participating library to be entered in two drawings, one for Most Libraries Visited and a Random Drawing for all participants. The drawings will be for two adult prizes of $150.00 and two children’s prizes (for those under 18) of $100.00.
Your Ridgefield Library card can be used to check out items in any of these libraries, plus you’ll have a chance to explore the unique treasures each has to offer. Any items checked out at another library can be returned to the Ridgefield Library. For more information visit Facebook.com/passporttoctlibraries. Happy exploring!
